The Battle Of The Gold Mascaras…


If we combined every Magpies’ makeup bags together, we could easily start our own Sephora franchise. And since we always review the newest and coolest makeup we come across, this is really good for those of you who don’t like wasting money on mediocre products like the crew of makeup addicts here does. On a recent rainy afternoon, we noticed that our newest purchases were all gold-cased mascaras. Obvs, being true Magpies, the shiny containers were the definite hook to get us to buy another, new and improved formula of the same mascaras we’ve been using for years! Since we had some time to kill, we decided to have a face-off (or in this case, a face-on!) of three of our very shiny gold-tubed mascaras, and see which one really did the best job as a mascara. We collected DiorShow Extase Mascara, L’Oreal Voluminous False Lashes, and YSL Effet Faux Cils Shocking, and we each applied a double coat of the mascara quickly, without pumping the wand or trying to avoid clumps (kind of like when you’re really late for work or you need to put on makeup fast ’cause your friend’s going to be really mad that you’re still not ready). With that being our criteria, DiorShow Extase was surprisingly the most clumpy when applied quickly.

The L’oreal Voluminous False Lashes is a thinner formula so it did not clump in a rush; however, if you don’t really have good lashes, it definitely requires more applications to look good. The Magpie favorite of these gold mascaras turned out to be the YSL’s Volume Effet Faux Cils Shocking. It’s a really intense black, and  gave definition and length to our lashes in the shortest amount of time (with the least amount of clumpiness). So there you have it, a quickie mascara competition among our favorite gold-tubed mascaras. Don’t get us started on what the outcome would be among the thousands of black-tubed mascaras we have. We’ll have to save that competition for a snowstorm…
